You may not think of Europe as a hotbed of the blues, but that’s only if you haven’t heard the dazzling work of Hans Theessink. Armed with a smokin’ repertoire he breathes new life into acoustic blues.
Guitarplayer Magazine, USA

Hans is from Holland, but that doesn’t stop him from playing some heartfelt blues. He has internalized this idiom – nothing academic in his fingers, it’s all feeling.
Philadelphia City Paper, USA

His in-the-pocket guitarwork makes for unique music. Theessink’s knack for making country-blues contemporary should make him a major new artist in the blues world.
New Music Report, Canada

Adventurous blues fans love him, and even the hard-liners can’t help but enjoy Europe’s answer to Ry Cooder. Hans has got an instantly recognisable sound and he’s also a strong , confident composer, often of songs with a social conscience. Thankfully he never gets preachy or sentimental.
